from him. former utah governor jon huntsman is running for president, despite the fact that no one outside of utah knows who jon huntsman is. they did a story about him last night on "nightline." this is his first campaign ad. this is for real. and i guess the idea is to show people what a regular guy he is. >> this man, a successful two-term conservative governor of utah. some see a man of the world. his family sees the world's best pancake chef, who makes a mean egg white omelet. a dad who listens, practical jokes. cranks up the rock. the dad who won't make dinner reservations because his favorite restaurant cartrton't take them. mary kay has mentioned she'd like to eat somewhere nice some day. but that day seems yet to arrive.

that to happen. >> with that let me bring in our team. jake tapper, jon karl on capitol hill. jon, given the deadlock, the senate republican leader mitch mcconnell says he doesn't think a deal can be reached so calm up with a last-ditch fallback. >> reporter: last choice option, only if the talks completely collapse. it's complicated but the bottom line is, it would give the president the authority on his own to gradually raise that debt ceiling by $2.5 trillion between now and the election. the political burden is all the president's. he can do it without spending cuts and even in the face of opposition from the majority in congress. i talked to a lot of republicans in the house, rank and file, who say it's not acceptable. they want real spending cut, a lot of them and nothing else. >> there's no guarantee of spending cuts even though it would avoid tax increases. any openness in the white house to that and where do they think the talks are right now? are they as pessimistic as mr. mcconnell? >> reporter: well, mcconnell's deal sent two signals to the white house, one, good news to them

answers from our two guests today. budget director, jack lew and jon kyl. two people around the negotiating table. in the meantime, also the report about wanting to go back to the grabbed bargain. speaker boehner said he wants to do that. the president said he wants to do that. the question is whether they can get elements on boararto pass such a thing. that, also is something that is being required right now by the ratings agency. moodys. standards & poors. said they must have some credible deficit reduction plan, 4 trillion or so over the next 10 years because of the way they are looking at the u.s. dollar and threatening to downgrade u.s. credit worthiness, and add to the catastrophic woes a default can bring. >> if we do not have a plan by this friday we will not meet the august 2nd deadline. all right. cristiane, a lot of tension there in washington. be sure to join christiane where she sits down with office of management and budget, jacob lew and senate minority whip, jon kyl on "this week." >> now, filling in for ron claiborne once again is abc's andrea canning. >> go
